Nope ★★★★★

A Western about black cowboys, surveillance, land, urban legends, Muybridge, how bad film theories are reactionary, the inherent racism of film production, the way POC are required to make entertainment and wrangle awe from their own trauma even as images of it are rendered Less Real, a pretty concise end to the tired CGI-v-practical debate,  the camera as an animal, the American spectacle. every 30 seconds, another precisely engineered part of its screenplay erupts into a jaw-dropping combination of picture and sound that is also joyfully contradictory in its secondary component while being both unapologetically specific to Peele and universally profound. I think this movie is a masterpiece. Excellent vibes too - eerie and cool, like a roadside attraction in a thunderstorm.
